if you want to excel in the field of architecture, fashion and design then you have to be good in drawing. It is very important cause you will be presenting your ideas through drawing and sketches. Your drawing skills will tell the other person how creative and good you are. To see how much drawing is important, I will suggest you to go through the previous years NATA and UCEED papers.

Weightage of drawing in NATA Exam out of total 200 marks:- 2 question * 40 marks = 80 marks

You can see out of 200 marks 80 marks is based on drawing rest(120 marks) is mathematics and aptitude. The drawing section is very important and hard to score. This is the section which can make or break the deal.

To improve your drawing skills you can either join a classroom coaching program or an online one depending upon your convenience. By doing so not only your drawing will improve but you will get to learn how to tackle certain scenario based problems.

NIFT MFM syllabus is quite similar to other entrance exams like MAT. Mathematics is of basic 10th level. Verbal and reasoning are of MAT exam level. Case studies will be of moderate level. To ace the case study you should have good comprehension and analytical skills.

what i can say is preparation of 3-5 months is good enough to secure a good rank in the NIFT MFM exam provided you have a good strategy to follow.Take previous year question papers and try to solve them, you will get to know where you stand and how much efforts you need to put in. Once you are done with your basics, start taking mock test and analyze them properly.
